This is a guest blog post from Valiantys the maker of Spreadsheets for Confluence.

Confluence is all about collaboration. It allows you to share ideas, data, and valuable information across your teams easily and painlessly. Information of almost every kind can be captured and flow smoothly within your pages, but there is still one thing that causes you trouble: spreadsheets.

Everyone enjoys creating a spreadsheet to crunch numbers and data. It can be anything from a contact list to project details. But what happens when you need to share it?

That’s when the ExHell begins. Endless email threads. Outdated versions proliferation. Information fragmented in silos. The other available option is to use native Confluence tables, which do not allow you to process and format data the way you’d want.

The good news is this time has come to an end. Spreadsheets for Confluence, our freshly launched add-on for advanced tables and spreadsheet management, can get you sorted.

Let me give you a quick tour to show you how.

Filter and sort data, see what matters

Filter and sort data, see what matters

Import your existing data from Excel (and other editors)

Of course, you already have data and numbers stored in tables somewhere else. Whether it’s Excel, Google Sheets, OpenOffice Calc or a CSV file, you can use the import feature and gather them in Spreadsheets for Confluence in a few clicks. It will import raw data, formulas, and cell styling and formatting.

Spreadsheets for Confluence is not Excel

Excel is a great and powerful tool, but it just doesn’t suit every use case. For example, let’s say you want to track project requirements, share KPI with your team, or collaborate on a project budget. You need information in context, you need one source of truth, and you need collaboration.

That’s where Spreadsheets for Confluence comes in to ease your life and speed up your work.
